Tag Friday - Cracked Seahorse

Today is Tag Friday with the winners' announcement at A Vintage Journey and I am contributing a seahorse tag as I just love the sea themed creatures on Tim’s dies.
The background was made with Tim’s bubble embossing folder, inked before running it through the Big Shot and then spritzed with water and dipped in some more salty ocean DI. I heat dried it and gave some depth to the bubbles by painting them over with white linen dylusions ink.
The starfish was cut from card painted with antique linen distress paint, edged with walnut stain and when dry a coat of rock candy distress crackle paint and some micro beads added to it. I love the texture it gives.
The seahorse was given the same treatment minus the beads and inked over with walnut stain DI.
I didn’t feel this needed many embellishments so I chose these two which I painted with antique linen DP before adding them to the finished tag.
The seaweed was made by cutting up the fronds from some green card run through Tim’s waves embossing folder, dipped in some white linen ink and edges with walnut stain DI.
Before bringing everything together I added some stamped text and distressed and inked the edges of the tag.
I hope you will have time to create something for yourself and for our latest challenge ‘Tim Flies’ before it ends next Thursday.

Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by.
